Tellin’ tall tales of how it used to be…

Found at an antique store in New Paltz

Sunday the mothers and I went on a lovely adventure.  We intended to go to the D. H. Flea Market in High Falls, NY, but we ended up getting a little lost.  No matter though we still had a great time.  Our first stop was to Starbucks of course!  I got my favourite hot day treat an iced Red Eye.  We then had to make a pit stop at the ATM.  And then we were on our way.  Because we got a bit lost we stopped in New Paltz and shopped a bit at the Water Street Markets, where I found some cool antiques of all sorts.  I did find Led Zepplin II on vinyl without the cover for $5.  I always check the vinyl record bins at antique stores, flea markets and yard sales.  I have been on the hunt for a specific record from the 80s for years now.  I still have yet to find it.  It’s Misplaced Childhood by Marillion.  I’m named after one of the songs and I would love to have a copy on vinyl.  Still no luck, maybe one of these days, I’ll find it.  I figured I don’t need the cover.  And I love all the songs on it.  I found some other really cool stuff, but nothing that I really had to have.

At the pet store in New Paltz

 We also stopped at the pet store and my Mother got some treats for her dog Fefe.  She is a recent addition to the family and the most docile dog I have ever met.  All she wants is a belly rub, but once you start she won’t let you stop!  And the best way to win her over is with a little plain chicken.  Or as my Mother purchased chicken and brown rice jerky treats!

Another trip is in order, $5 margaritas are always in!

Around 12:30 or so we made our way back to High Falls and decided to take a lunch break.  We had a lovely lunch at Kitchenette.  We had never been before, this place is amazing, the portions are good, the drinks are amazeballs and the atmosphere is great.  I had a Spicy Martini (it had jalapeno infused
vodka, pickle brine and a dill pickle for garnish, it was spicy and refreshing), the Fancy Grilled Cheese and KMC (Kitchenette Mac and Cheese).  It was the best lunch I have had in a while.  I definitely can not wait to go back for more!

We finally made it to the flea market and we were not impressed, partly because it was later in the day and partly because I think it is still early in the season.  There are other flea markets in the area and there is a whole summer ahead of us, so I am optimistic that we will find great deals and interesting things.  And on that note it’s time to end!

I love finding historical places. 

All for now,
